The following is a true story, not some Saturday Night Live skit drawn up to mock extreme conservatives:

Rachael Ray may be a sell out, but at least she isn't a fear-mongering nut job such as Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin.

Chef at the White House

Due to pressure from Malkin - who makes Karl Rove seem like a benevolent liberal - Dunkin Donuts has canceled an ad in which the domestic diva wears a scarf that looks like a keffiyeh, a traditional headdress worn by Arab men.

What, you didn't know that a keffiyeh was a symbol for terrorism? As Malkin succinctly puts it, you must be a clueless moron.

"The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad," Malkin wrote in her syndicated column. "Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant and not-so-ignorant fashion designers, celebrities, and left-wing icons."

Note to Malkin: these types of scarves are available at Target. Get over yourself.

Not wanting to drum up controversy, Dunkin Donuts has pulled the ad, which featured the photo above. Its response to Malkin?

"In a recent online ad, Rachael Ray is wearing a black-and-white silk scarf with a paisley design. It was selected by her stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended. However, given the possibility of misperception, we are no longer using the commercial."

Readers, if you care about the state of this nation, you'll send in your thoughts to Michelle Malkin and let her know America, similarly, has no use for her.

Like Hillary Clinton or absolutely despise her insincere, pandering persona, you have to admit that the former First Lady can at least laugh at herself.

She smiled through her explanation of how she conveniently misremembered being under sniper attack in Bosnia - and she's also poked fun at her past choice of outfits.

Regarding the following sweater she wore in 1998, Clinton said: ""Sometimes the Christmas spirit gets the best of me."

Despite all the breakup talk, Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo are back together, but a college friend of the Dallas Cowboys quarterback says Romo's insisting on calling the plays from now on.

"He did agree to go to [sister Ashlee's] wedding - keeping his promise to Jessica," Romo's Eastern Illinois alum pal told the Chicago Sun-Times.

"But he made it super-clear that if they were to give it another go, her dad, Joe, had to seriously back off."

Joe Simpson, a former minister and current pimp, has long been seen as an overbearing presence, managing both his daughters' careers.

While clearly successful at what he does - look at how much money he's made off two airheads with no talent - Joe Simpson has earned a reputation as a guy who's, um, extremely difficult to work with.

The Sun-Times says Tony Romo told Jessica Simpson that their renewed relationship is on a trial basis, so long as Joe "leaves them alone" and stops telling Romo how to run his life, career and endorsement deals.

Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson have been seen together in recent days, after the solo vacation Jessica took in Cabo San Lucas following the pregnant, talentless Ashlee Simpson's marriage to Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz.

During the New York City premiere of Sex and the City: The Movie this week, star Sarah Jessica Parker commented on her favorite part about the project.

"The best part about making the movie was being back with the women on the set all day every day, and the best part about tonight is being here ... with the fans," she said, as a crowd of people squealed and waved around her.

A pair of Hollywood Gossip favorites recently showed off their fine form - on the pitcher's mound! As baseball fans, we couldn't resist this photo finish ...

Newlywed Mariah Carey threw out the first pitch at a Japanese baseball game this week. No word on whether her throw made it to home plate, but at least she has a shiny jacket with her initials embroidered. That counts for something.

This week on The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas took to the hill against some of her aspiring boyfriends at Dodger Stadium. Most of the shlubs proved inept at home run derby, but DeAnna looked stellar. And we don't mean her mechanics.

A Toastee Toof sex tape landed this Q-list celebrity a new reality show.

Ditto for the Kim Kardashian sex tape.

But we can only hope confirmation of a R. Kelly sex tape will land this pedophilic singer in jail for a long time. Following the testimony of a recent employee yesterday, this appears closer than ever.

Lindsey Perryman, who worked as a personal assistant to R. Kelly and his family on and off for seven years, was among the latest witnesses to identify the musician and the alleged victim as the ones on the graphic 27-minute videotape.

"I didn't want to think it was them," Perryman said, adding that she never saw anything that might make her think the Grammy-winning singer might be involved in anything untoward, even after he was indicted in 2002.

If the R. Kelly sex tape is proven to be legitimate, the singer will have a reaction similar to this.

"He treated the people that worked with him extremely well," Perryman added. "There was never any reason to walk away and say I would call the police."

Tell that to the minor R. Kelly is accused of having sex with and urinating on.

Are Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson a couple?

Days after pics of these two nuzzling necks in Cannes surfaced, the man whose sperm is responsible for Lindsay's existence told Us Weekly that her relationship with Ronson "is evident to anyone with half a brain."

Michael Lohan in Action

In other words: Jessica Simpson has no idea it's going on.

But "just like the [topless] Marilyn Monroe spread, Linds is my daughter and there are just some things a father doesn't want to see or hear, regardless of whether they are true or false," Michael Lohan said

Michael added that Lindsay "is a big girl, and she can make her own life choices. Then it is between her and God." (And the latest person sharing her bed, of course.)

It's none of his business, and he'd never exploit his daughter to a celebrity gossip tabloid, but Michael Lohan says Lindsay is totally doing Samantha Ronson!

Meanwhile, Michael also had to take a swipe at his ex-wife, Dina Lohan.

"Maybe her mother's life revolves around the tabloids and reports, but mine doesn't," he said. "I am into setting a good example and doing good things that don't deceive or exploit my kids."

Well said, Michael! The tabloid you exploited your kid to wrote the quote down perfectly.
